This paper briefly describes the significance of studying the paradigms of intelligent manufacturing, and introduces the connotation and development process of intelligent manufacturing. By analyzing the characteristics of relevant paradigms of intelligent manufacturing, three basic paradigms of intelligent manufacturing are summarized: digital manufacturing, digital and networked manufacturing ("Internet Plus" manufacturing or smart manufacturing), and digital, networked, and intelligentized manufacturing (new-generation intelligent manufacturing). The connotation and characteristics of the three basic paradigms are expounded. China should start with the digital manufacturing, thus to consolidate the foundation for the development of intelligent manufacturing. In the next stage, China should focus on the development of "Internet Plus" manufacturing, and promote these three basic paradigms in parallel. The new-generation intelligent manufacturing will fundamentally lead and advance the fourth industrial revolution, and bring a historic opportunity for China's manufacturing to achieve leapfrog development.
